Hi Casy,

The listing agent didn't provide a list, however, they have accepted a primary offer on this short sale and are looking for backup offers right now. I also noted that they will only accept Cash or Conventional Loans on this property, so chances are the repairs would preclude FHA offers. ... more

Hi Roseann,

I just checked your link for the home and I don't see where it says that your property sold in 2012. The only thing I saw was that it shows property taxes for 2012. Under homes that sold near you is a similar address but it is Street not Place that sold in 2012. Could it be possible that you were looking at this address instead? 14828 N 51st St, Scottsdale AZ 0.06 mi Single-Family Home $283,000 8/28/12.

I also checked MLS and the tax records and it does not have any information that your property has sold since your purchased it in June 1989.

Hope this helps.

If you have any questions, please contact me at your earliest convenience.

Thank you,
Michelle Hamilton

It's a great time to sell. The market is seeing some of the lowest inventory ever. This is changing hte market from a buyers market to maybe not a sellers market in terms of higher pricing yet but at least equal. Check with an agent about the specifics of Phoenix but market and industry wide say "yes"! ... more

Michelle Spalding answered:
This property is still active and available in MLS for $165,000. Trulia and other syndicated sites receive a data feed from MLS, which is where us agents place listings and update their status. Occasionally, there will be an issue with a data feed and a property will still appear to be active when it's been sold, or even more commonly, the agent will be continuing to market it for backup offers after a primary offer has been accepted.

In this case however, this property is a lender owned Fannie Mae REO and is currently available at that price. It's been on the market 16 days and has just left it's "First Look" period which means it is now also open to investors or those looking to purchase a second home, whereas the first look period restricts it to offers that are owner occupied primary residences!

Hope this helps!

I believe the biggest factors in Phoenix's housing market recovery are:

The historically low interest rates
The returning short sale buyers
New buyers attracted to lower prices

Lenders willing to approve more loans
Federal legislation

When I take a look at recently sold homes in the area for the past 6 months, they have been selling for around $100 to $150 per sq ft, this one is currently listed at $112 per sq ft so it is priced well for the market, now that remains are the condition of the property and title to add or subtract value. Since this is a large home it seems high. ... more

Hi Jason:

The number and extent of conspiracy theories is truly amazing. With this one, I can't even figure out the motivation...(is it suppose to be pro-Obama or pro-Romney? What benefit would it have to the banks to do so?)

Arizona is a "Non-judicial" foreclosure state, meaning banks can process them without having to go to court. This accelerates the process tremendously here in Arizona, so that everything I have read indicates we do not have much of a "shadow inventory" waiting to be dumped onto the market. Much of the lower end of the market got, and is being, absorbed by investors. Many other homeowners, unfortunately, are unable to sell due to being underwater so there is a constraint on houses coming onto the market. At the same time, you still have many new people coming into the market, wanting to buy their first home--to take advantage of great interest rates, etc.

In my humble opinion, these are the reasons why there is such low inventory in the Phoenix area, not some hidden agenda by the banks. Or, is it just me???

Sean Heideman answered:

Properties are getting purchased at a faster rate than banks are able to release properties. Properties are no longer sitting on the market for month; therefore, the foreclosure inventories are down. Traditional sales (No banks involved) is about 50% +/- of the market and prices are rising due to low inventory levels.

If you are thinking about buying an investment property, then now is the opportune time to get into the market to start earning some equity and monthly cash flow. I am an investment specialist and I can help you find a property that will provide you with a 15% to 30% leveraged ROI. Please give me a call to discuss some investment properties.
